These people are your clients, your customers, your employees, your suppliers.
These people are your greatest asset and they are not confident that their data is secure online.
Your organisation has the legal and ethical responsibility to ensure corporate confidentiality and to protect personal information. You will also be aware that the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) will change your business from May 2018...but there are substantial benefits...
...more of your 'people' interacting online can substatially reduce your costs, time and risks or non-compliance. PAOGA Personal Information Management Services (PIMS) will be offered by organisations, such as those in Education for their students or Financial Services for their clients, for important or sensitive information and documents so they can be confident of their privacy.
Whatever type of organisation you are, whilst you no doubt enjoy the convenience and benefits of email, social media and IM, there must be times when you question its safety?
You read the news and see that another one of your suppliers has been ‘hacked’ and data has been 'compromised'…maybe that’s your confidential information.
A competitor has just been fined thousands of pounds for not protecting their data . . . their share price drops . . . their customers and employees desert them. Could this be your business next week, next month, next year?
Your clients, employees and suppliers share your worries.
They don’t want to see you fined or your reputation damaged. They want to trust you . . . and if you share both the problem and the solution with them then they are going to feel more secure, more confident, more trusted. You can provide them with a secure communication channel (provided by PAOGA) by which you ‘share’ the responsibility for encryption when it is confidential or sensitive information that you want to share. A digital safe deposit box in your chosen cloud for which only you and your client have a unique, strong key to view the data/document/file at any time . . . and both of you have a time-stamped Audit trail.
Enter your Personal Identifying Information (PII) and have it verified by your choice of recognised identity assurance providers (IdAP) including Credit Rating Agencies such as GB Group etc.
Use Paoga as a 'single sign-on portal'.
Log in to your trusted websites and online applications generate unique, secure passwords and let Paoga remember them for you.
Upload important (and authenticated if required) documents, files and data to store in your chosen Cloud Storage Provider (CSP) including Microsoft Azure, Amazon S3, Box, Dropbox, OneDrive, etc.
Invite or connect with other PAOGA users, individuals or organisations, with whom you have a trusted relationship, so that you can share relevant PII, share documents, files and data, secure document exchange with digital signatures of ‘evidential weight’, secure message exchange (text, voice, data etc.)
At PAOGA we have identified numerous business areas able to benefit extensively from the use of our Personal Information Managment System...however, we are currently focusing our attention on two distinct market sectors;
PAOGA are working with a UK University to improve the Student Experience whilst reducing the cost, time and compliance risks of administration of student data collection, verification and maintenance. TMS (Time Management System) pilot, funded by the University, is a subset of the PAOGA suite as a 'Proof of Concept' to quantify and qualify the benefits to the University Health & Social Sciences Faculty, students and the NHS Primary Care Trusts they work with.
The reduced cost, time and risk that TMS have delivered will be increased by an order of magnitude as we deliver the PAOGA PIMS to address their ‘student onboarding’ administration. 130 UK Universities with 2.2 million students could benefit from this solution.
Your Personal Identifying Information (PII) verified by Trusted Third Parties for multiple use.
Single Sign-On to University and other websites with unique generated and encrypted passwords.
Academic & Professional Qualifications, Certificates, Records, Time-Sheets automatically encrypted, stored and shared when required.
Peer2Peer secure communication and messaging with Students, Staff, Mentors, Admin and those you trust.
Of course, all of these students will then be looking for a career and communicating with Recruitment Agencies and Employers HR departments. Those who can share ‘verified’ PII, Documents and Academic Qualifications and Certificates save considerable time and costs for Recruitment Agencies, Head Hunters and HR Departments...which is to the advantage of the student and the employer.
...and if that's a career in the Financial Sector (along with legal and medical) then client confidentiality is a legal requirement. Poor data stewardship damages reputations and, with less than 6 months until GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is implemented, Financial Service providers, and other sectors need to demonstrate that they are addressing emerging and increasing cyber security threats.
As an individual within an organisation it is critical that your clients and colleagues are confident that they are communicating with you.
As an organisation you can share appropriate documents such as contracts, handbooks, Terms and Conditions, with requests for a digital signature, of evidential weight, when required.
As an organisation, you can provide access to appropriate websites and servers as appropriate.
As an organisation you can provide the PAOGA service to your clients, employees and suppliers.
Research shows that individuals will share as much as 9 times the amount of personal information if confident that the organisation will protect it from abuse.
As an organisation you can issue a branded PAOGA PIMS subscription to your key customers with connections to your account manager so that there is always a secure communication channel for emails, messaging and document exchange with storage in uniquely encrypted ‘digital safe deposit boxes’ distributed on appropriate Cloud Stores and accessible to your clients wherever they are.
GDPR legislation imposes stringent penalties. Your Audit Trail and Digitally Signed, Time Stamped document exchange provides excellent compliance evidence.
